After 30 years of commitment and dedication to nursing and midwifery education and training, Phillip Sebastian (pictured, left) is retiring from Monash Health.
Phillip is a long-time and respected member of the Nursing and Midwifery Education & Strategy (NaMES) team who currently works as a Clinical Nurse Educator (CNE) at Casey Hospital – but is well known to many across the organisation.
Phillip transferred to Monash Medical Centre in 1989 from Prince Henry’s Hospital, where he commenced in 1986. He was employed as a Clinical Teacher and coordinated the Graduate Program with the grand total of 23 graduates!
Phillip has had many portfolios over the years, which have included (but were certainly not limited to): coordinating Basic Life Support assessments for 15 years; coordinating the Undergraduate Program; developing short courses for the nursing and midwifery workforce; and more recently, the role of CNE at Casey Hospital – which he has performed for eight years.
A winner in the ‘Excellence in Nursing/Midwifery Practice’ category at the annual NAMAS awards in 2015, Phillip received this accolade for his pivotal role in developing the professional and clinical practice of colleagues, doing so with drive and commitment to deliver quality patient outcomes.
Phillip’s experience, contribution and knowledge over many years has been invaluable to the growth and development of the nursing and midwifery workforce at Monash Health.
We thank him for his enormous contribution and wish him well in his retirement!
